    Don’t we need base rock beneath to keep the paver leveled overtime?

    Hi Doc,
    I’m in Boston and haven’t put anything down yet. Too late for pre emergent so what should I put down too start??
    Thanks

    Mighty fine lawn you got there!!! I like how its not cluttered with plants in your beds, great job!!

  5. Raul Sanchez on September 3, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    You could also use Ironite. That makes it super green

  6. Bird Brain on September 3, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    They want fucking $4.99 for landscape edging blocks where I live in Canada
    Cheaper to buy cement and make my own blocks I think

  7. M. Breezy on September 3, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    You can put the block right on the grass? Don’t have to dig it out or out leaving sand? Thanks.

    How do you deal wih grass growing up between the stone joints? I have not found a easy method.

  9. Julie CHEN on September 3, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Can you post the link or the name of the black rubber edging materials?

  10. hellodahlink on September 3, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Now the it’s been a year, how did the edging hold up? It doesn’t move even though it’s not dug in? Looks great!
    Also wondering how you finished off the edge of the lawn along the fence? Only a couple of quick shots of it, so hard to tell. We need to have ours finished off somehow.

    Beautiful yard. How do I know what type of grass I have ? 🤣 I am in Montana. Thanks

  12. Howie Hockney on September 3, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    What’s the stones u used

  13. OneBite Dog on September 3, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Man, did you have to use Round Up?

  14. Liz Markey on September 3, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Won’t the stones get uneven over time if you don’t prep underneath them?

  15. Debbie Sineath on September 3, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Looks good!

  16. Elizabeth Hazel on September 3, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Decent edging job, but boo-hiss for using Round-Up! Really bad, disappointing that you used such an environmentally unfriendly product.

  17. lil flex lewis on September 3, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Thank you for this video. I’m going to do it the same way. You made it so easy to follow and do. Appreciate it

  18. z0mby d0nky on September 3, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    How should we apply in order and how many times a year should we apply the off complete? And the organic one should we use off first and how long should we wait to put down the organic one or vice versa? Organic first wait one week then put down pgf?

  19. Laurel Callaway on September 3, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    That looks beautiful with the stones!

  20. L D on September 3, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Believe me when I tell you your stones are going to sink

  21. Les W on September 3, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    I love the scale of those stones. Really nice

  22. Matei Cristi on September 3, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    Why use the plastic thing when you can only use the natural stones…

  23. Badass Uchiha on September 3, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    I thought Brick & Mortor how Hard can it be but so Time Consuming digging the Amount of Depth & doing everything else I can do I can’t stand taking all that time

  24. gautam totekar on September 3, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Mulch around trees vs pebbles… what do u think Doc?

  25. Basement Artie on September 3, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Thank you for sharing…. Beautiful home 🏡

  26. jr1001jr on September 3, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    👋 Question… For long distances, can the ground be cut with a Stick Edger instead of using the Spade Shovel, then insert the liner into the ground?🤔

    Thanks for any/all feedback. 👍😎👍

  27. Remona G on September 3, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Do the stone move around?

  28. Janice Jubach on September 3, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    I would like to try this in front of my house but there is a slight slope on the one side. Should I make it all level or can I just follow the slope with a single layer of rock?

  29. SlayerofGiants on September 3, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    The solar lights u used, are they spotlights & are they meant to shine on the house or the bushes?

  30. SlayerofGiants on September 3, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    Beautiful property! I recently used the beige color of the stones u used for the border! Look great with triangular gaps side by side, or gaps at all 😬😬

  31. Michael Fisher on September 3, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I got rid of my edging last year. Got tired of the freeze/thaw cycle pushing it out of the ground. So I went with a live edge. Will see how that works out for now.

  32. Catherine Pierce on September 3, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    It really breaks my heart that a gardener uses wildlife killers like Roundup. The environment needs our help.

  33. Gina Cable on September 3, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    I ignored your good looking subscriber rule lol and subscribed anyway!

  34. love16 on September 3, 2021 at 11:01 pm

  35. Nick А on September 3, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Have you ever had moles?

  36. joe dipietro on September 3, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    hope you got native flowers in that bed or else it’ll just be a waste.

  37. olegig on September 3, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    To me a great edging would eliminate the need for trimming.

  38. Tess Poole on September 3, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you. Very helpful and your video is not boring at all.

  39. Relevant .C on September 3, 2021 at 11:07 pm

    nothing is grass proof. been there done that my friend.

  40. jadesothermimi on September 3, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    So much easier than using concrete like other videos!

  41. Eddie Brady on September 3, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    The edging looks great! Could I do this without Roundup? I don’t want that stuff on my property…

  42. Shooters Secrets on September 3, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    PgF Complete really good stuff! Doc is the man!

  43. Bill Piotter on September 3, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Edging looks good, but now I would have to run a string trimmer along the stones to cut the grass.

  44. myjunkmail007 on September 3, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    I FINALLY found a video where someone alternates the bricks to avoid those triangular gaps!! It’s common sense to me, glad I’m not the only one.

  45. valente on September 3, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Can i throw mulch on top of rocks
    there are to many rocks around my house to pick all of them up
    i was wondering if i can just cover them with sand then throw plastic on top and then the mulch

  46. Andrew Frankovic on September 3, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Is there a way to do this so you don’t have to edge what the mower can’t cut?

  47. Jackson T on September 3, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Note: 3-4" is not deep enough to keep Bermudagrass out of the flowerbeds……especially common Bermuda. My neighbor did almost the exact same thing and it failed after 1 year. Bermuda is now all up in his flowerbeds. It looks like you may have Tifway or some other hybrid. We decided to go deeper (about 12") and installed a poured concrete edging. No problems after 4 years.

  48. Rushabh Gosar on September 3, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Not sure if its a great idea to spray RoundUp and immediately be working in the same area. Its known to contain toxins that affect humans as well. Maybe use a gentler chemical or wait for a few days before working in the area, great video and advice otherwise 🙂

    More info here (and even more can be found by simply googling) – https://www.millerandzois.com/roundup-cancer-attorneys.html

    I love how you admire your lawn LOL if you don’t love it, you won’t treat it with love

  50. Gnik4144 on September 3, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    How do you kill the grass?
